Antelopes are part of the large group of horn carriers (bovidae). In contrast to the animals carrying antlers, they have their horns lifelong. In most of the species only the male has horns, in some they are common to both genders. Of the gracious impalas (top) alone, the most widely spread species, there are an estimated 100,000 individuals living in South Africa, mainly in the Kruger Park.
One can also watch kudus (centre) which can jump over 2.50 m high fences. There is the waterbuck (bottom right), the meat of which acquires a rancid taste once they are older than three months, which is quite a good protection from predators. One of the rare species are the red hartebeest (bottom left) with its oddly shaped horns.
